Weekend assault

Mounties arrest man in abduction, beating

A suspect accused of kidnapping a teen at Westgate Mall this weekend was captured in Vancouver Tuesday. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Residents of Maple Ridge can rest easy now that an accused abductor has been arrested after a violent weekend attack. Police arrested a 25-year-old man, “known to police,” at 10 p.m. Tuesday night in Vancouver, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Insp. Dave Fleugel. The man is suspected in the kidnapping and beating of a 17-year-old girl who was accosted at gunpoint from Westgate Mall at about 8 p.m. Saturday and taken to a secluded location and beaten. “Shortly after we released the suspect’s Ask us How to

picture yesterday, we started to receive tips,” said Fleugel. “That allowed us to quickly identify and then locate the suspect.” Fleugel does not believe the suspect is from Maple Ridge. “First we were working with a Surrey address and then he was arrested in Vancouver, so I can’t confirm this,” the inspector explained. Mounties are thanking the public for the valuable information it provided police. “We heard from many people who recognized him. Plus, we even heard from a goldsmith who was familiar with that piece of jewelry,” Fleugel said about the images that were spread through the media, including an image of the cross that the victim ripped off her attacker’s neck. “We all benefit when citizens are so

Pitt hosts first-on-tour job fair

Ten employers took part in a job fair in Pitt Meadows. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

About 430 people turned out for the first stop of a 23-city job fair with BC Jobs Plan, according to a spokesperson for the tour.

“It was a great turnout. I think everyone was really happy with the employers who came out,” said Adam Duron, a spokesperson for BC Jobs Plan. “Some people even gave testimonials that they were pointed in the right direction for their career path,” he added. “We had everything from middle-aged people looking for

Many exhibitors at the fair were employment resources like WorkBC and STEP, who help people to find jobs, but aren’t necessarily hiring.

People of all ages and across all job sectors explored the career options of 10 exhibitors. “Lots of parents came in with their children after school. At the WorkBC site there is a special section for job-seeking youth,” said tour staff Theodora Ip.

The concept of adopting a living wage for families received a less-than-enthusiastic response from council members at a meeting in Pitt Meadows Tuesday afternoon. Councillor Dave Murray said he was “a little disappointed” with the report that was provided to council by staff.

“They didn’t come forward and say how much it would implicate the budget in Pitt Meadows,” he said. The report talked about Surrey and other municipalities that declined to participate. However, Murray said the only community that is measurable is New Westminster, because it is Dave Murray the only area to have adopted the policy. The report pointed out that “it is importdealt ant to realize that [City of Pitt Meadows]

contracts out more services than New Westminster (initial estimate is over 100 contracts that could be eligible from City services alone, excluding agreements held by Maple Ridge on behalf of RCMP and parks and leisure services.)” Living wage refers to paying contractors a minimum rate, in this case $19 per hour. Coun. Doug Bing said that this is a provincial or federal matter, not to be with at a municipal level.

District of Maple Ridge

Citizen survey promoted

Haney resident wants residents surveyed on whether they want municipal garbage pickup. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge resident Todd Oliver wants to “dig deeper” to find out why there is such resistance in Maple Ridge to municipal garbage pickup. Oliver made a presentation to Maple Ridge council Tuesday about surveying residents about District-wide integrated waste management, for example, surveying people at the upcoming home show about the issue. While neighbouring municipalities like Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam have municipal garbage pickup, Maple Ridge is a “stand pat” community that won’t even consider going in that direction. “For some reason, it’s a really taboo issue at city hall,” Oliver said. “I’m trying to cut into it.” Oliver recently spoke to someone who had just moved to Maple Ridge from Vancouver who was wondering why there had been no garbage pickup for three weeks, after which Oliver enlightened him on the lack of service in the District. “It is just so yesterday,” he said, adding that he doesn’t believe people will stop

recycling if there is integrated municipal garbage pickup, which is often the argument he hears against it. If they are educated on the issue, people will continue to recycle, he said. Since May, Oliver has been doing research into municipal garbage pickup and he said he’d like to “dig deeper” into the reasons why there is such resistance in Maple Ridge to it. Oliver would like to sit down with Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin to discuss the issue. Maple Ridge “I would like us to Councillor Bob have a mechanism Masse said through the course of the to bring these 2011 election camquestions to the paign, the topic of public.” getting municipal Bob Masse garbage pickup came up often, and it was something he wanted the District to look into. But, whether it’s garbage pickup or other concerns residents have, Masse said he’d like to see a better way of surveying the public and finding out what they want. “I would like us to have a mechanism to bring these questions to the public,” Masse said, for example, having garbage pickup or building a new museum. Technology might be useful to survey people, Masse added. Whether or not programs like garbage pickup is implemented or not should be based on what residents want. “I think there should be municipal garbage pickup if people want municipal garbage pickup,” he said.

City staff eye library space Personnel is currently ‘double bunked’ in the municipal building. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Space is tight at Pitt Meadows City hall, but the former library building will provide some relief for City staff. The human resources and IT departments will be moving into the building in February, and they will be joined by Pitt Meadows economic development office, which will take over one-third of the space. Currently a lot of City departments are “double bunked,” said Pitt Meadows CEO Jake Rudolph, and the economic office is in the back of the tourism office. The rest of the former library building will be leased. Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters said she hopes the space will go to a group that enhances the area. “I think it should be something that lends itself to the civic centre area,” she said. Pitt Meadows staff will bring recommendations to council in the next few

Community groups are constantly needing places to meet, Walters said, and those available, for example, the Meadows Room at City hall and the community hall by the

heritage church, are in continuous use. “There’s a huge demand for community space,” Walters said. There is a meeting room in the old library, which will either continue to be used by the community or be part of the lease.

A A Sushi Sushi Lover’s Lover’s Dream Dream

Vancouver-quality sushi in Maple Ridge-sized portions is on the menu at Kimi Sushi.

Positioned on Lougheed Highway in the core of Maple Ridge, the folks at Kimi Sushi understand a “North of the Fraser River” appetite. In Maple Ridge, people want big portions of quality food at a fair price. You won’t find all three at a downtown Vancouver sushi place, but Kimi Sushi ensures you get the full experience. Operated by a brother and sister team, the Chens have more than just a passing interest in excellent Japanese food. “I ran a wonderful Japanese restaurant for over 8 years,” Jenny Chen said. “And Qun [her brother, and head chef at Kimi Sushi] learned his trade from some of the best sushi chefs in Vancouver. He spent over 5 years learning the proper cutting and serving techniques.” The diverse menu at Kimi Sushi includes hot and cold items, an array of lunch and dinner boxes and special sauces custom made by Qun. One of the current specials offers up to 18 pieces of sushi, plus miso soup for just $6.95. Don’t think the low price means low quality - the quality at Kimi Sushi is second to none. Sockeye salmon and real crab are available and Jenny noted, “Qun knows quality seafood. If there is even a chance that it isn’t top quality he will throw it out – he simply won’t use it.” Since the location opened in December, customers have been complimentary of the newly modified, updated décor and of the food. The sashimi especially, is a treat for seafood lovers. “He cuts it thick and it’s very fresh,” said Jenny. “Some customers have asked who is cutting the sashimi the next day because they enjoyed the large pieces so much – it’s always Qun.” As Jenny said, her brother’s reward is the feedback from customers. “He’s happiest when people say how good the food is.” Kimi Sushi is open 7 days a week 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Lougheed at 225th under the red and yellow awning. Groups of up to 24 and up to 50 can be accommodated in separate rooms which makes the central location ideal for lunch and dinner meetings.

Caring Place hunts for walkers

People are being asked to sign up for a fundraiser that will help boost Salvation Army programs.

Coldest Night of the Year sign up

by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A walk through a cold night in Maple Ridge can give a small taste of what it’s like to live on the streets – but it’s also an opportunity to raise money for the Caring Place. On Feb. 23, Maple Ridge will take part in the Coldest Night of the Year, an event that’s happening in 40 communities across the country. Caring Place staff are hoping the fundraiser will raise $25,000, all of which will go toward local programs run by the Salvation Army that serve residents of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. The family-friendly event is meant to give participants a sense of what it is like to survive through cold nights on the streets of Maple Ridge. “This event aligns so well with what we do,” said Amelia Norrie, public relations coordinator for the Caring Place. As of last week, there were six teams signed up including Caring Place staff, two churches, and a group from the Ministry of Social Development. The organizers would like to have 20 teams with about 120 walkers in total taking part and are therefore appealing to local agencies, groups, Place at 5 p.m. and then go on either or businesses to sign up. a five-kilometre or 10-kilometre “One of the easiest route. ways for businesses There will be rest “One of the easiest to help us is to put a stops along the way ways for businesses where participants can team in,” Norrie said.

Perhaps, if you are particularly unlucky, it will take root in your bones, giving you one of the most painful experiences known to humankind. There is a more positive reason to quit smoking, too: everyone is on your side. Everyone. Those who’ve never smoked, and those who quit years ago will applaud your decision. The B.C. government will be happy with you, and will even give you free medications to help you quit, through the smoking cessation program. Bars and pubs in B.C. will be happy that you’re not nipping out the door so often for a smoke, letting in that cold air. Ditto your significant other, who will be able to avoid either allowing you to smoke inside or banishing you to the garage or deck. Your bank account will be particularly pleased, as will you when you see how much more money is there at the end of a month. It adds up, even for only a couple of packs a week. Your doctor will give you a big grin. Chefs will be happier, because you will be able to taste their food. A few years from now, you’ll have mostly forgotten why you started smoking the first place. You don’t wheeze going up a couple flights of stairs anymore, you can’t stand the smell of tobacco smoke, and much of the spectre of an early death has been lifted from you and from your loved ones. C’mon, butt out. We’re rooting for you. – M.C.

Gateway pipeline

Dear Editor, Polls conducted last fall demonstrated that nearly two-thirds of British Columbians are united in opposition to the Northern Gateway Pipeline. Recent presentations by citizens at the Joint Review Panel in Victoria and Vancouver have been unanimous in opposition to that pipeline. Right here in Maple Ridge, hundreds of people have attended pipeline protests, signed petitions, written letters, and attended town hall meetings to show concern. Meanwhile, we hear that our premier is being bankrolled by a group of Albertans stating they fear a B.C. NDP government might take into account the wishes of the majority of British Columbians to stop the Northern Gateway Pipeline, and that the re-election of the BC Liberals, on the other

hand, will protect the pipeline proposal from being delayed or cancelled. By accepting these campaign donations, is Christy Clark confirming the pipeline will go ahead? Her willingness to take this money casts all doubt aside that either the environmental risks or First Nations interests will be considered by her government. Undoubtedly, Christy Clark receiving this money is legal. However, taking campaign money from oil industry types who want a pair of tarsands pipelines full of toxic bitumen rammed through our province is clearly wrong. The only way to avoid this sort of corporate influence in the future is to change the BC Elections Act so that only individuals are able to make political donations. Verity Howarth, Maple Ridge

Smart meters

Data access unequivocally refused

Dear Editor, The following is an open letter to: Mr. Gary Murphy, chief project officer for Smart Metering Program. I am writing in response to your letter stating your intention to install a Smart

Meter at my residence. I wish to bring to your attention a registered letter, a notice of no consent, sent to Mr. Greg Reimer, executive vice-president, transmission and distribution in November 2011.

Public pensions

Investments spell hypocrisy

Dear Editor, Public pensions, through the BCIMC (B.C. Investment Management Corp.), are invested in evil, greedy big businesses such Enbridge, Kinder Morgan, BP PLC (the company involved in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico). The University of Victoria has $50 million invested in oilsands and tobacco companies, and even weapons companies are part of their portfolio. Gwen Barlee of the Wilderness Committee has correctly said, “To say I am astounded is an understatement.” Ms. Barlee should also know the unions do not pay income tax on investment income. Can anyone spell hypocritical? Cherryl Katnich, Maple Ridge

Pitt Meadows

Honour turns to piggy bank

Dear Editor, You’ve listed the Pitt Meadows mayor’s salary as jumping by $16,000 over a three-year period [Pitt Man lobbies for zero, Jan. 17, TIMES]. This equates to an approximate raise of 10 per cent per year for each of the three years. How many Pitt Meadows residents have received that big a raise, if any increase at all, over the same period? I can see why Queen Walters isn’t concerned about residents paying more in property taxes when she, with council’s support, can just vote for another pay raise. It used to be an honour to serve your community, now it’s just how big a paycheque they will get. Apparently, the mayor and council regard the citizens of Pitt Meadows as their piggy bank, and they won’t be happy until they empty it completely. Archie Blankers, Pitt Meadows

Federal politics

Serious consequences ignored

Dear Editor, We have Conservative MPs like Randy Kamp who slavishly parrot the Dear Leader’s talking points, and just do as they are told, without knowing or caring about the serious consequences of their actions. And then you have Conservative MPs who do understand the negative consequences of their actions, and even rant on about them, and then go not only against the Canadian public’s wishes, but vote against their own conscience. I don’t know which is worse, the ignorant doppelganger or the enlightened scoundrel. Neither deserves the privilege, honour, and responsibility bestowed on them by the Canadian people, and they are an affront to democracy. Wayne Clark, Maple Ridge

I will state my reasons for refusal and ask that you carefully consider these concerns. Our forefathers came to this country to escape tyranny and rigid anti-life regimes. They came here to be free. Many people have given their lives so that we may enjoy freedom. I am distressed that a system is being put into place which is anti-free choice. There has been no public approval of this wireless technology, many people do not even know that it is wireless. They assume that it is a new version of the fibre optic system which has served us well and not been shown to contribute to health problems. Many people are more sensitive to energy – I am one of those people. I cannot tolerate a microwave in my home, and I do not want one outside my home. Many studies over many years demonstrate a direct correlation to health problems and exposure to electomagnetic radiation. In addition to the health issues, there is the matter of data collection. Do you want someone gathering data on you and then selling it or sharing it with others? I will repeat to you and to all contractors: Be advised that you and all parties are hereby denied consent for installation and use of all Smart Meters on my property for surveillance, and actively monitoring device or devices at the above property. I forbid, refuse, and deny consent to install a Smart Meter. Any attempt to install such a device will constitute trespass, stalking, wiretapping, and unlawful surveillance and endangerment to health and safety – all prohibited and punishable by law through criminal and civil complaints.

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take.

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. ! Working in a health #40 food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL ! My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON ! I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON ! I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN !Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

CONTROL WEIGHT ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks! = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are #1 caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC!Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.

Andrew Allen, Stef Lang, and an artist known only as Laurell – three musicians with strong roots in the province of British Columbia – will perform a B.C. Beats concert at The ACT this Saturday night. Allen has toured throughout North America with acts including Bruno Mars, One Republic, and the Barenaked Ladies. Originally from Vernon, Allen was the feature performer for the Sochi 2014 handoff finale for the closing ceremony of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games held in Whistler. Allen’s career in pop music is taking off thanks to his hit Loving You Tonight, which landed him a record

of the Year at the 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards, led songwriting workshops all across Canada and the songwriting workshop at CRE8 Youth Week at The ACT in 2012.

Walk for Memories

Couple copes with dementia

A retired firefighter and his family join in this weekend’s fundraiser.

At age 81, Jim Boileau still holds fond memories of his 42-plus years of service as a Port Coquitlam firefighter. But, admittedly, those recollections are becoming fewer and fewer as dementia slowly steals away this Maple Ridge man’s memory. Recognizing the struggles that Boileau and his wife Dolly, as well as some 70,000 other B.C. residents living with this disease face on a daily basis, the Alzheimer’s Society of BC is holding its annual Walk for Memories at Rocky Point Park in Port Moody. And this year’s walk is being dedicated to Boileau. He was diagnosed back in 2006, when he began forgetting the names of fellow firefighters and struggling with directions in a community he’d know inside and out for decades. “He knew, himself, something was wrong,” and quickly took himself to the doctors,” explained Dolly, his wife of 59 years. “It started slowly. But in the last year, it’s gotten worse,” she told The TIMES. While he had a heart bypass in 1997, and surgery a few years later to remove a tumour from his tail bone, Dolly explained that her husband remains in relatively good physical health to this day. They walk regularly, and get out and about for chores and visiting almost daily. But those outings are now restricted primarily to afternoons and early

Environmental School Registration will take place between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm on January 28 & 29, 2013 at the following NEW location:

ALBION FAIRGROUNDS Commercial Building (east entrance) 23448 - 105th Ave Maple Ridge, BC For a map of the new registration location, go to www.sd42.ca www.sd42.ca

Jim and Dolly Boileau will be participating in the Walk for Memories in Port Moody on Sunday, to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s society. evenings, when his cognitive powers seem stronger, Dolly said. She’s also noted in recent months that her husband has cut out going for lunch and playing pool in PoCo with friends – something he once did twice a week. Instead, he’s more content now to be at home, often watching sports on television. That said, Dolly believes Jim is going to be able to live at home, with her continuing to function as his primary caregiver, for some time to come. While offered respite, she hasn’t taken anyone up on that offer yet. But admittedly, she said, being there all the time and trying to constantly be attentive to his needs and location could become more draining as his condition worsens. She said she may eventually need some help. While the couple participates in a support group with the Alzheimer’s society and have called on them over the years

for information and assistance, this will be the first time they participate in the Walk for Memories. In fact, they’ve formed Team Jim, which will include Jim and Dolly, as well as their two daughters, three grandsons, one granddaughter, two greatgranddaughters, and numerous other relatives and friends. In addition to Boileau, there are other family members – Jim’s older sister, Dolly’s younger brother, and their daughter’s mother-in-law – who have all been stricken by dementia. The disease, Dolly said, has obviously struck very close to home for them. The regional Walk for Memories, just one of 23 held around the province this weekend, includes a one- and six-kilometre walk along the Shoreline Trail in Port Moody starting at 1 p.m. People can register in advance at www.walkformemories.com.

Business happenings

Canuck Place: No season, all the more reason Sylver Scoop by Sylver McLaren

R

ecently the owners of the Jolly Coachman Pub in Pitt Meadows, Marilyn Sanders and Dave Crown, thought it would be a good idea to raise money for the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice because 25 per cent of the operating revenue of the hospice had been coming from 50-50 draws during the games. But now that the hockey season is back on, the Jolly Coachman will continue with the fundraiser until the end of February. Self-proclaimed Canucks junkie Loraine Scott, who works at the Jolly Coachman liquor store, hosts the draws every Thursday night, because she says, “it’s a cause near and dear to her heart.” It was Crown’s idea to christen the 50-50 draw as “No season, all the more reason.” So far they have raised $5,910.

Winter increases potential suits Gene Fraser, a senior lawyer with Becker & Company, practised in Ontario and B.C. for nearly 20 years. Send questions to: info@ beckerlawyers.ca

Legal Briefs by Gene Fraser

W

hether you are driving on the new Port Mann Bridge, walking on an icy sidewalk while doing some local errands, or simply participating in a recreational activity, you should always understand your legal rights if you become injured. You should also validate assumptions about any possible claims. It’s the icy season of slips and falls, and we’ve seen many clients who have suffered significant injuries from what you might consider a simple fall from either ice or a crack in the sidewalk. I recall one such elderly client who tripped on a crack in the sidewalk and fell face first into the concrete. She eventually recovered, but she suffered some truly awful facial injuries. When you consider that, as residents, each of us must keep the walkways and sidewalks of our residential property icefree and safe, it won’t surprise you to know that municipalities have the same obligations. Municipalities must maintain safe sidewalks and keep them ice-free or repair hazardous cracks or other safety-related issues. While they are obligated to keep them safe, if you slip on municipal property you have only two months from the

date of the injury to notify the municipality in writing of your potential claim. This notification must be delivered directly to the municipality and include all pertinent information, including your legal name and address, and the time, place and manner in which the injury was sustained. Failing to provide the municipality with this type of notification may jeopardize your claim for injury compensation. Now, if a municipality has complied with a reasonable standard of care and is maintaining the sidewalk regularly and a sudden freak storm occurs, creating treacherous icy conditions, they may not be held responsible should you fall and sustain an injury. This is because they may have met a reasonable standard of care, especially if they could not have anticipated the freak storm. Similar considerations apply to the maintenance of your own residential property to ensure the safety of your visitors. As for the Port Mann Bridge, liability for falling ice and a slippery bridge deck is still to be debated by lawyers and decided by the courts, but individuals won’t know for sure whether they have a reasonable claim until the issues of standards of care and liability are properly assessed. But the test will always be the same: was a reasonable standard of care met? For those who sustain injuries during recreational activities, such as skiing, you may have a claim against the operator of the ski hill, even if you signed a waiver of liability. A waiver does not necessarily absolve a party from their responsibilities. Insurance companies deter a lot of claims with the use of waivers, but what’s not well known is that many claims are worth pursuing and can result in settlements in favour of the injured.

All ages join race for literacy

by Jo-Ann Sleiman

f the word literacy makes you a little uneasy, you’re not alone. It is often mentioned in connection with world poverty, and it can conjure images of starving children, exploited workforces, and open sewers. It also stirs up all kinds of uncomfortable memories of failure in the minds of otherwise secure and happy people – of the Bs that insisted on looking like Ds long after everyone else got them straight, the dread you might still feel just looking at a job application form, the entrance exam you failed twice, the resentful stares from your Grade 6 teammates as you tried unsuccessfully to spell the word purgatory. For others, the word only elicits disinterest. But literacy isn’t boring, judgmental, or frightening, and it doesn’t discriminate. It is equally important to all of us, and something we all – no matter how knowledgeable or clever – can work on continually throughout our lives. The meaning of the word evolves as our society changes and technology and knowledge advance. Defined most narrowly, literacy is simply the ability to read and write. It generally walks hand-in-hand with numeracy – the ability to understand and manipulate numbers – and in recent years, the definition has expanded to include many other competencies that are considered important to a productive, happy life. Terms like financial literacy, computer literacy, technological literacy, physical literacy, visual literacy, and health literacy are now common. Literacy skills open up work and leisure possibilities and help us to function independently, to communicate better with other people, and to engage more

fully with our society and government. Literacy is one of the main concerns of our school system, and the reason behind much of the library’s community outreach and internal programs like Babytime, Storytime, Summer Reading Club and even our computer classes, social media workshops, and financial skills seminars. Perhaps most surprising is that literacy can be lots of fun. Several local organizations will get together in the library on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. to celebrate Family Literacy Day with the Maple Ridge community. Everyone from toddlers to seniors can take part in the Amazing Literacy Race, share snacks and coffee, and enter to win prizes from pencils to books to gift certificates and Kobo eReaders. Teens can work with words or just hang out at the Teen Lit Cafe, children will be captivated by storyteller Paula Justus and all will enjoy the exciting sounds of multi-instrumentalist Boris Sichon. The event is organized in collaboration with the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Katzie Community Literacy Committee, School District 42, and parks and leisure services and is supported by various local businesses and organizations. Also starting in the library this month is the Adult Learner Book Club, which is designed for adults who would like to become better readers. Joining a book club is a great way to improve your reading skills, meet people, and have some fun. The group will get together every two weeks on Thursdays at 7 p.m. starting Jan. 31 to discover the joys of reading and share tea, cookies, and experiences. The book club has been planned in cooperation with the Community Literacy Committee. If you are interested in joining, please contact the library’s main floor information desk for more information or to register. Our phone number is 604-4677417. Come in and pick up our new winter/early spring program guide to see what else is coming up and to learn more about Fraser Valley Regional Library.

times Travellers Brandon and Audra Severinski of Pitt Meadows (below and right) had their picture taken in Times Square recently, holding a copy of The TIMES. Brandon won a Taylor Swift (above) contest through JRfm Radio where he was sent to New York City to attend the country singing sensation’s concert at the Ed Sullivan Theatre, participate in a meet -and-greet with the celebrity, partake in her album release party, and watch her sing in Times Square for Good Morning America. The locals even got to watch filming of Late Night with David Letterman. “It was really cool!” Brandon said of the entire experience.

Flames re-ignited after lopsided loss

Wins continues When it rains, it pours — and for the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs it’s raining toonies from heaven. The B.C. Major Midget Hockey League squad added two more wins to their now eightgame win streak, topping the North Island Silvertips 7-0 and 5-3 in a weekend doubleheader. Maple Ridge’s Jeffrey Smith collected his third straight shutout in the opener on Saturday, reducing his goals against to 2.75 per game in the process. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

After getting steamrolled by the Abbotsford Pilots last Friday, the Ridge Meadows Flames got back up, dusted themselves off, and proceeded to trip up a team of Devils the next night. Coming off a 9-2 thumping at the hands of the Pilots at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena, the Flames bounced back with a 4-2 win over the host North Delta Devils in Pacific Junior Hockey League action at Sungod Arena. “We regrouped in style,” Flames’ head coach Jamie Fiset said. “That’s what we wanted to see: a pushback.” Pilots 9, Flames 2 The Harold Brittain-conference leading Pilots took a 6-0 lead into the third period en route to a lopsided victory. Flames trailed 3-0 after a first period that saw them get outshot 20-3. Their slow start could be partly attributed to the fact that a few of the Flames players arrived 40 minutes later than anticipated, due to an accident that slowed traffic on the freeway. “Our guys were not satisfied with our game in Abbotsford,” Fiset said. “I could tell we were not in that game mentally. We had no bounces that night. In a lot of ways, it was one of those games where everything goes wrong.” That said, the Flames had a decent final 20 minutes of play, in which the Pilots had a 3-2 edge in goals. Sean Pesut ruined Abbotsford goaltender Aaron Oakley’s shutout bid when he scored 44 seconds into the frame. The Pilots responded with three unanswered goals to take a 9-1 lead before Ridge Meadows’ Matthew Bissett finished the night’s scoring with a powerplay goal 13:55 into the period. Dylan Cusmano and Joel Atkinson each scored a pair for the Pilots,

who also got goals from Kyle Star, Devon Allenby, Adam Rossi, Michael Tebbutt, and Brandon Daase. Tebbutt and Daase added three helpers apiece. Flames 4, Devils 2 Backed by a 28-save performance from RJ Bruni, the Flames bounced back nicely from the shellacking they absorbed the night before. Ridge Meadows grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals from Bissett and Connor Redmond. The second period was all Devils, who outshot the Flames 15-8 while getting goals from Latrell Charleson and Levi De Waal. The Flames got their groove back in the third frame, with Pesut netting the winner with 2:20 to go in regulation, set up by Ryan “We played and a very simple Lisowsky Michael Nolan. game and Bissett scored into the empty net focused on with 14 seconds our defensive remaining to seal the Devils’ fate. zone.” “We played a Jamie Fiset very simple game and focused on our defensive zone,” Fiset said. “We had a good first period, in the second we were a little sloppy, and our rookie goalie played outstanding in the third period for us. He made sure they didn’t get that 3-2 goal. That was huge for us.” The weekend split gave the Flames a 12-17-2-4 record heading into their game last night (Jan. 23) against the Pilots at Planet Ice. The contest got underway after the TIMES went to press yesterday. Win or lose, the Flames will remain in third place in the Harold Brittain. Going into the game, they were 15 points back of the second place Aldergrove Kodiaks and 13 points clear of the fourth place Mission City Outlaws. The Pilots are running away with the division with a 26-8-0-2 mark. Earlier this week, Fiset said the Flames were taking an even keeled approach to the game. “When we lose games we’re not happy; when we win games we’re just satisfied. The guys expect to win games. It’s like, ‘This is what came to do,’” Fiset said. “Every game’s different, with a different set of things to go work on. We want to build on consistency and a very balanced game. That’s basically it.”

Garbage morphs into artwork

One person’s so-called trash can be another’s artistic inspiration. Maple Ridge artist Lea Sevcov can attest to that. She has used what many might consider throwaway items either in her pieces, or as the basis of her artwork. “My mother’s an artist, too,” Sevcov related. “She was doing a bunch of landscapes and flowers, and I tried to do that kind of stuff, but it just wasn’t me. I got frustrated.” Sevcov took a course in abstract art about eight years ago and found her niche. “I thought, ‘Oh, this is my thing!’” she said. For two of her mixed-media pieces, part of an exhibit from the Garibaldi Art Club currently on display at The ACT, Sevcov used pictures to model her work around. “And that was of a broken door,” she said. “And I just kind of went from there. I can take pictures of garbage and all kinds of stuff, and a lot of times it’s just a starting point. I’ll get the colour ideas or shapes, and it just kinds of morphs from there, and most of the time, it doesn’t look anything like it started to be.”

Weeping Moon Ann Blackwell

The work of Lea Sevcov as well as other members of the Garibaldi Art Club is being shown at the Passagio Gallery inside The ACT. Troy Landreville/TIMES

The abstract artwork of Sevcov and fellow members of the club is currently hanging on the walls of the Passagio Gallery, located on the second floor of The ACT. The club members selected the artwork and mounted the displays themselves in the space allocated by the local theatre and cultural centre. The exhibit changes every two months. This most recent one runs until March 4. The Maple Ridge Art Gallery provides administrative support in creating labels for the artwork. Each artist’s name and contact information is situated beside the pieces, for anyone wanting to purchase the artwork. “The gallery doesn’t even take a commission,” Sevcov said. “They are doing this as a community service for us.”

Formed in 1959

Butterfly Nebula

One of the longest-running art organizations in Maple Ridge, the club formed in 1959 when local painting enthusiasts began meeting at the Albion Hall. The group later moved their weekly painting sessions to Maple Ridge High School, where they were offered meeting space courtesy ofthe school board. With approximately 100 members, the club meets in The ACT craft room the first Tuesday of every month, and hosts a juried show and a general show each year. Sevcov became a member seven years ago. “I was semi-retired, and just getting back into art, and joined,” she recalled. “They’re a great group of people.”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead hold secrets and subconscious urges.Your intuition rises to the surface; your impressions are correct, especially about a Virgo or Gemini. Research, detective work can advance your standing with higher-ups. You might feel inexplicably drawn to someone in a lustful way. If you’re both single, and merge, you’ll have a very ambitious future, you’ll be a “power couple.” That doesn’t mean a loving couple, though. Sunday/ Monday are for earnings and spending: proceed carefully. Errands, trips, calls and news media fill midweek. Be home Thursday/Friday: much success! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities, new horizons – and on opposition and obstruction. The difference is largely up to you – smiles win, challenges don’t. Your energy and charisma stand out for all to see Sunday/Monday, but nothing gets done without humble co-operation. Chase money, add to your possessions Monday (unreliable) Tuesday (good, except for used items) and Wednesday (lemons, except 3 – 6 pm PST). Short trips, errands, paper work, and communications fill Thursday/Friday. All’s well – but avoid drawn out talks with co-workers. Saturday: home, family. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A few weeks of hard work face you. A thread of romance survives just long enough to confront you with the question (Friday onward): do you want to marry this person or not? Lust and money are involved. Rest, lie low Sunday to Monday afternoon: be self-protective, ignore possible eggers-on. Your charisma and energy return Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Use this interval to solve problems and tackle formerly daunting chores. Good and bad luck mingle, so stay alert, respond to hunches. Take care with money, purchases,Thursday – but charge forth with these Friday before supper.

TRUE PSYCHICS 4 Answers CALL NOW 24/7 Toll FREE 1-877-342-3032

Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity grows. You’ll make solid advances socially, could make new friends, might be attracted to a potential mate (who probably comes from the friendship area). Romantic feelings (and creative surges, speculative urges) visit you Sunday. Exciting meetings occur late Wednesday night through Friday – these days also hold a possible or eventual upheaval, which could force you to choose between love and prestige, mating and career. (If someone new attracts you late Thursday night or daytime Friday, the upheaval is in your past, and this potential relationship is free of it.) Taurus April 20-May 20: Your world has shifted, from contemplation to action, from understanding to ambition. Pursue ambitions now into late February. (Then, the return of an old friend or social group will tell you the hard work’s over.) Until Wednesday p.m., a dilemma might force you to choose between a business or love partner and an ambitious goal. Rest, nurture your family Sunday, early Monday. Your romantic, pleasure-seeking, creative and speculative side blossoms Monday afternoon to Wednesday – you might be a bit confused Monday eve. Tackle chores (and angle for promotion) Thursday/Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: You feel mentally alert. The few weeks ahead are a splendid time to travel afar, write, engage in intellectual activities (school, lawsuits, etc.) and fall in love – or move a present love to a nuptial stage. Sunday/Monday are busy with errands, calls, reports, details and variety – step lively, but carefully in relationship communications. (Unintended slights can occur.) Veer toward home and family, nature and rest Monday afternoon to Wednesday. All goes well, but health or chores nix a love or intellectual pursuit. Romance hits powerfully Thursday/Friday – if before 6 p.m. (PST) Wednesday, a future upheaval might shorten love’s life span; if you meet after this, or Friday daytime, love’s future looks long and bright.

Jan. 27 - Feb. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Romance, creative surges, pleasure forays, speculative ventures, games, risk and beauty – these fill the weeks ahead. You could fall in love – and it could lead to marriage. Respond to any romantic openings, glances, or notions now to Feb. 1. Your courage is an essential ingredient. (After Feb. 1, we return to “ordinary romance” – though the “wedding likelihood” remains high through June.) You feel optimistic, hopeful and popular Sunday/Monday. Retreat, rest and plan midweek. Your charisma and energy soar Thursday/Friday: you’ll walk the winning path! Shop, Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Be ambitious – but very diplomatic – Sunday/Monday. Your hopes rise Monday afternoon into Wednesday eve: light romance, popularity, social delights and entertainment arrive, though they might be slightly clouded by your own (newly since last autumn) serious demeanour. Retreat Thursday/Friday: plan, contemplate, be charitable. Interface with government or head office Friday, not Thursday. Your energy and pizzazz rise Saturday. All week, your home and family grab your attention – be gentle, affectionate. Pay attention to real estate, security, retirement plans and nutrition. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis lies on communications, trips, visits, errands, paperwork, casual acquaintances and variety. (Chase that last one, for your curiosity, now to mid-February, might lead you to a place where you will later live – or more likely, curiosity will uncover something which helps your finances later.) A talk or trip can also lead to romance. Understanding and a mellow mood flow over you Sunday/Monday – gentle love is in the air, but others might be touchy. Be ambitious Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Plan what you’ll say to a higher-up or VIP. Hope, joy Thursday/Friday!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money, add to possessions. The earnings area of your life is on a slow but unobstructed pathway to increase over the decade ahead (though things get interesting 2018 onward). Respond in kind: march ahead to make money. This is different than career: your “prestige side” wrestles with many unpredictable upsets and opportunities in the years ahead (as Thursday/Friday show). But it, too, is upside-prone. Don’t risk money Sunday/Monday. “Hot sex” might be interlaced with anger. Mellow understanding flows Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Choose: money or friends. Joy, Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, magnetism, effectiveness and sense of timing remain high. Start significant projects, seek favours, see and be seen – impress people. Sunday/Monday might bring a relationship or opposition: step lightly. The “under world” of sex, finances, secrets, medical research and lifestyle changes drifts to the surface Monday eve to Wednesday. Right now, these succeed on a small basis, but not in the large picture.Bosses are skeptical.Careerwise, you need to show unwavering “dutifulness” to September 2015. Gentle love, understanding and travel Thursday/Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest, recuperate, think and plan. Enjoy solitude. You’ve just entered a powerful, 15-year cycle that will emphasize/promote your ideas, needs and goals as never before.This demands thought and choice. Tackle routine chores Sunday/Monday. Don’t argue with anyone, nor push a machine to its limits. Relationships surge Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Though the general atmosphere won’t bring you anyone with whom you can share mental and emotional “oneness” – still, affection wins. Grab a late Wednesday opportunity. Life’s mysteries arise Thursday/Friday. Gentle love Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
